Adding flax seeds to your diet may help you lose weight as obesity is one of the symptoms of PCOS
PCOS, also known as Polycystic ovary syndrome, is a hormonal disorder among women who belong to the reproductive age group. These days the health issue seems to have increased manifold among women. PCOS causes irregular periods, excess hair growth, acne and even issue like infertility in women. The worse part is that sometimes, individuals with PCOS are comparatively more vulnerable to various health conditions. However, there are some home remedies or food items that are beneficial for women suffering from PCOS. Nutritionist Lovneet Batra shares the benefits of flaxseeds for women with PCOS. She shares a post on Instagram Stories listing different benefits of the food item.
According to Lovneet Batra, here are the benefits of flaxseeds for PCOS:
1) Secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) is an active compound in flaxseed, which has anti-inflammatory effects.
2) Obesity is one of the main causes of the onset of PCOS. Flaxseed is a rich source of fibres, specifically soluble fibre (25 percent soluble form). Dietary fibre, especially soluble fibre, could help weight loss by delayed gastric emptying and inducing the feeling of fullness.
3) Flaxseed contains lignin, a plant-based estrogen that helps balance out excess male hormones and reduces excess hair growth.
